The Ignorance of the UN IPCC

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri has been the chair of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002. If you thought that that would mean that he was familiar with climate trends, you would be wrong, as this CFACT video shows:

The interviewers are referring to statements (details here) by Dr. Phil Jones who is the source of much of IPCC temperature data.  Pachauri, although he holds a doctorate in industrial engineering and economics, responds to the questions not as a scientist, but as a bureaucrat: he seems unfamiliar with temperature trends and cannot offer any insight on them other than to refer to UN documents.
